Trivia

All exterior scenes were filmed in the Ski resort Falls Creek, Victora, Australia, where the landslide site was recreated painstakingly accurately from news footage and photos. The production chose this location as it was considered inappropriate to recreate the site in the actual town of Thredbo, NSW and that Falls Creek had similar style of locations and ski lodge architecture to double for Thredbo in the film.

A breif overview of the film.
11 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is an amazing film, and it really captures the feeling of what happened on that day in 1997. The film focuses on the rescue workers and their tireless struggle to help save any life that may have survived. A great Australian cast, and Craig MacLachlan is perfect for the role of Stuart Diver. A must see for anyone who remembers the Thredbo snowslide, and a good dramatic watch for those who don't.
